{Travel} Dublin Day/Night 8-Northside Walking Tour

In my last post, we had just toured the Guinness Storehouse and we were enjoying our complimentary pints(included in admission).
I turned into an Irish red fox after about one quarter of the way through the pint. That was enough for me.
We left and walked back into the city centre in search of lunch.
We had passed Apertivo and noticed their sign for vegan pizza quite a few times so we decided to stop there and try it.  I ordered this special.
It was so good and had so many mushrooms, maybe even too many for me!
 In the afternoon we were signed up with Dublin Free Walking Tours for a tour of the Northside.   You meet up with the tour guide at the Spire of Dublin and can spot them by their yellow umbrellas.
It was pouring and there were only 4 of us on the tour but it was like a nice private tour.
Our tour guide was really awesome and I'm so glad we didn't let the rain keep us from learning so much about the history that took place right on these streets.
The Garden of Remembrance was especially moving and beautiful.

This plaque is a replica of the letter that Irish rebel leader The O'Rahilly wrote to his wife as he lay dying on the street. You can read the whole story here.

The Famine Memorial was striking and powerful.
The tour finished up where it started at the GPO (General Post Office-site of the 1916 uprising).   It was such a worthwhile tour, I highly recommend it!
We met up with College Girl for dinner that night.
And enjoyed a little bit more of the Dublin night life!
